Artist-led Problem Solving For The Digital Age

by Maija Liepins

Across the globe we have witnessed a significant shift in the way we consume and share information.

We communicate faster, with increasingly sophisticated visual and digital mediums, and our expectations have shifted toward more authentic, interactive, knowledge-rich relationships.

Every sector is left grappling to find effective means to connect with people, build relationships and make a meaningful impact within their industry or community. Consequently five trends dominate the discussion across business, culture, research, and education. These are:

  • impact
  • engagement
  • interactivity
  • experience, and
  • relationships.

This paper shows that artist-led problem solving can be used to inspire meaningful work; a deep connection; and more lasting relationship between people and organisations.
